Custom Art – Dinosaur theme

Posted in Art, Hand painted Children's Art - My Painting, My Custom Artwork with tags , , , , on September 10, 2013 by lollipop-designs

I have recently finished doing this Children’s Dinosaur scene painting which was commissioned by a family for their little boy, Orlando.

There is 7 pieces of canvas which make up the entire design.

Dinosaurs can be such fearsome looking creatures and considering this was for a young child, I needed the dinosaurs to be friendly and happy looking.   I designed them to have the look of a cartoon/comic style dinosaur and painted them in nice bright colors that would stand out (with one thing specifically requested by Orlando’s Dad – definitely no matching Australian football colors for the dinosaurs!! lol).

The main canvas has the Dinosaur scene on it complete with a volcano in the background, rocks, plants and waterfall oasis with 6 various Dinosaurs posing around the picture.


The other 6 pieces of canvas that complete the set are of each Dinosaur separately painted as if they’ve had their photo taken.   Dinosaurs are painted the same colors with different colored backgrounds.

WMDino6 WMDino5 WMDino4 WMDino3 WMDino2 WMDino1

Sealed with gloss varnish.

The measurements are :

Main Dinosaur Scene:   61cm x 91.5cm or  24″x36″

Dinosaurs:  25cm x 25cm  or 8″x8″

Medium:  Acrylic

Hope you like them.  🙂

Chipmunk riding Harley Davidson custom painting

One of the pieces I’m currently working on a custom request for a character with dark sunglasses on, riding a Harley Davidson.  I’ve opted to put the motorbike on a highway doing a ride-by with some brown/green grass at the edges of the road.  The chipmunk will be the character as I think it’s rather cute with it’s oversized teeth.  I put a leather vest on it so it should blend right in with other motorbike enthusiasts I hope.

Part 1 – Sketch of chipmunk (hope it looks like one because we don’t have chipmunks here in Australia, so I had to google what one looked like haha!) riding a Harley Davidson.

The client has asked for the theme to be black and orange so this will be quite striking with the colour contrasts.  I’m looking forward to painting this and excited to see how it turns out!

Word Pop Art handpainted painting

Posted in Hand painted Children's Art - My Painting with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2013 by lollipop-designs

I thought I’d do something a little different and do a word with a pop art styled background and a street art themed word.  To be honest, it made me wish I had an airbrushing kit to use.  But I eventually got it done by handpainting all of it except for the outlining, where I used Molotow Paint Markers (the best art markers in the world!!! 😀 )

Anyway, I hope you like it and to show the process from the beginning to the end, I’ve attached all of the pics so one can see the stages.  For me, the most frustrating part is waiting for the paint to dry.   Plus I paint from the right hand side of a canvas as I’m left handed, otherwise I end up smudging everything that I’ve just done.  *Sigh*  I guess it’s the same for a right hander.  Ah, the joys of painting huh!

New items in ETSY store for boys Pirate, Pirate Ship, Treasure Chest, Parrot, Dinosaurs

Posted in Hand painted Children's Art - My Painting, Kids with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 27, 2013 by lollipop-designs

I’m not sure what you guys have come across if searching for boys art, but I’ve found that boys can often be overlooked when buying children’s art.  Quite a lot of art I’ve seen lately has been cute, pink and sparkly and has mostly been targeted towards girl’s rooms rather than the blues, greens, pirates, trains and dinosaurs for boys rooms.

Therefore, I decided to do some boys art just so they didn’t miss out on some cool jazzy art for their walls too.

The dinosaur art pieces are 20x20cm or almost 8x8in and $15 each plus shipping.

Meanwhile the pirate set of 4 is $145 or you can pick and choose pieces made to order for $40 per canvas 20x25cm or 8x10in.

To have one or more made to order, go via etsy link top right of blog and select Custom.

Hope you like these latest ones 🙂

Friendly Fish in the Aquarium painting now on ETSY

Posted in Hand painted Children's Art - My Painting, Kids with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 22, 2013 by lollipop-designs

This painting is made-to-order due to people being given the option to choose different canvas sizes (therefore, different prices).  I love looking at tropical fish in fish tanks with their brightly coloured coral reef, probably because it reminds me of home (having grown up living next door to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia).

Looking at this painting makes me happy.  I think it gives me a nice dose of colour therapy.
